GoldStar DH304Y5 Dehumidifier won't run

I took the wire off the humidity control and then it runs. The humidity control does not even click as to gauge when it has to turn on the machine. Could this be the problem to replace the humidity control?

Could be the tempurature of the room you have it in. Make sure it is not operating in a room below 65 degrees F or 18 C

SOURCE: LG Goldstar dehumidifier runs constantly

sounds like the rheostat (aka rotary swithch) is opened (fried). can get new one on www.appliancefactoryparts.com for 8.19 + s/h. need to know how to solder though. otherwise you will be looking at having to buy new unit for $120+

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

Only available for DjVu reader (download link on LG site). You'll need to download and install the plugin then close and relaunch your browser. I was only able to get it to work in IE in the end with Firefox and Chrome not working. IE objected I had to "allow" the plugin to run then once again close and relaunch the browser then it finally worked. Good Luck!

I have a goldstar dehumidifier that runs for a couple min. then turns off. I unplugged the rheostat wires from the mother board and it runs just fine. Does that mean if I replace the rheostat switch the...


Runs for a few minutes then shuts off, easy fix. First, remove water catcher and slide filter out and clean it. Then find the two screws that hold on the front panel remove front panel. Make sure the unit is un-plugged. The humidity control dial has two wires connected to it. clip the inner wire. This will keep the unit on full. You could replace the humidity control dial, but why bother?

My Goldstar dehumidifier model DH304 runs,but fails to pick up any water


If the room air is less than the set air, then there is no water in the bucket, because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water.

Other things that can cause problems: 1.Check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. 2. The room temperature might be too low, (below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ) 3. Check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on


Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:

Won't shut off


Contact points in the humidity control may be stuck or arced together. If so this item is not covered by warranty after the first year in most cases.

The main switch is broken off and it does not turn on


You have to remove the entire wrapper to get to the control circuit board, make sure you unplug unit!! Locate the small white wires that plug into the board and go to the humidity switch.Unplug the connector at the board and plug the machine in and see if everything runs. ps make sure you reinstall the bucket or unit will not run. If machine runs replace that humidity control. The plug on the board is usually white. The other white wire is 4 the light. I hope this helps./

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
